Food, fun, fellowship and fundraising are the main events at the ninth annual Hunting Heritage Super Fund Banquet, hosted by the Big Mac Struttin’ Toms Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation Jan. 18 at the Quality Inn in Ogallala.
Doors open at 5 p.m. Come early to relax and enjoy social hour before sitting down for a prime rib or rib eye dinner at 7 p.m.
The NWTF’s Hunting Heritage Banquets raise funds for wild turkey conservation while combining a great place to meet new friends who share a passion for the outdoors, win valuable prizes and purchase items unique to the NWTF.
By placing the highest bid or winning raffle games, attendees can go home with sporting art, unique hunting firearms, knives, wildlife calls, outdoor equipment and more.
With the price of the banquet, attendees receive an NWTF membership while doing great things for wild turkey conservation and preservation of hunting heritage.
The cost also includes a one-year subscription to Turkey Country, the NWTFs full-color publication that includes stories about conservation issues, turkey calling and hunting, the NWFT’s education program JAKES (Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethics and Sportsmanship), Wheelin’ Sportsmen NWTF and Women in the Outdoors outreach program and much more.
The NWTF and its members raise money through ticket sales, silent auctions and raffles. The money is combined with donations from corporate sponsors and individuals concerned about wildlife conservation.
The NWTF is a national nonprofit conservation organization that was founded in 1973 and has worked with wildlife agencies to restore wild turkey populations from 1.3 million to nearly 7 million today.
Now, NWTF’s volunteers raise funds and work daily to improve critical wildlife habitat, increase access to public hunting land and introduce new people to the outdoors and hunting.
Together, the NWTF’s partners, sponsors and grassroots members have raised and spent more than $373 million preserving hunting heritage and conserving nearly 17 million acres of wildlife habitat.
